Babcock Airports

Babcock Airports is a leading international provider of through-life airport solutions supporting major airport operators, delivering the design and operation of baggage handling systems, airport IT systems and the management of operating critical fleets and ground support equipment (GSE).

Our customers are some of the world's busiest operators, which include Heathrow Airport Ltd, British Airways, Swissport, Dnata and Schiphol airport, and we deliver the following benefits to them:more

  • Performance that meets the customers' needs
  • Ability to deliver significant cost reductions
  • Transfer of operational and cost risk
  • Whole-life value and optimised asset management
  • Improved availability performance and operational resilience
  • Innovation that drives best practice and continuous improvement

Delivering Proven GSE Solutions

Babcock delivers proven capability in managing assets, ensuring maximum performance at the lowest whole life cost - 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year. For each piece of equipment, we optimise its performance, right the way through to renewal, and successfully provide maintenance to the GSE fleets for major operators including Heathrow and British Airways.

Babcock transforms GSE support equipment performance through ALCAMiETM, our unique approach to asset management, comprising a customise set of tools and processes.

ALCAMiETM manages the complex combinations of vehicles and specialist equipment used within the challenging airport environment and is tailored to individual customer's requirements. We optimise fleet performance, availability, and provide granular information that guides long term investment decisions.

This is supported by the latest telematics technology to ensure that not only is equipment in the right place at the right time, but that excessive equipment, which is both costly to maintain and underutilised, is removed.

Through ALCAMiE we also provide total visibility of performance and cost of ownership that helps managers make whole life decisions, saving time and money through our unique combination of fleet reporting, core asset management, on-site workshops and a managed service centre.

Delivering Expertise in Baggage Handling Solutions, Operations and Maintenance

Babcock helps its customers to improve the passenger experience and keep flights on schedule. Our proven capability of processing160,000 bags a day reinforces our position as a leader in airport solutions with accountability for supporting major airport operators and airlines. Babcock capabilities provide end to end management that delivers a one stop shop, that improves complex baggage handling systems from design, installation, build, upgrade, IT systems, operation and maintenance, eliminating duplication, multiple suppliers and complexity.

Our strengths in engineering, project management and control systems have made us the recognised industry sector leader in the provision of through-life integrated baggage-handling solutions. Babcock's capability and proven partnering approach is a key factor in the work with Heathrow and its users reducing the operational risk as new facilities such as the new T2 passenger Terminal and the T3 Integrated Baggage facility are brought on line.
